Water Activity Overview

A small drive from the Arete Outdoor Centre is the extensive North Wales Coast.  A comprehensive network of bays, inlets and open water allow for many an interesting journey by kayak. Alternatively we can provide a chance to explore the rugged coastline of Anglesey close up, scrambling and swimming our way along.

The mountainous regions and climate also provide a good supply of water which feed the intricate river systems and lakes. The lakes in the huge valleys of Snowdonia are great for exploring using canoes or kayaks and are also a great place to practise some of your boat handling skills before moving on to the sea or rivers.

This area is truly a kayaker's paradise for all abilities, from the lakes and meandering rivers to the rapids and gorges, which all lead to the sea.

Some of the steeper rivers provide an opportunity for gorge scrambling and canyoning. This combines travelling over, under and around the rocks and boulders with getting wet under waterfalls or in plunge pools.

North Wales certainly has something to offer all water lovers! Check out the activities under the Water menu to see what addventures await you!
